ASHLAND, VA -- Sophomore attacker Kalli Parrish (Timonium, MD/McDonogh School) scored four goals as visiting Washington College downed host Randolph-Macon College, 12-8, in a non-conference women's lacrosse game this afternoon in Ashland, VA. The Shorewomen improved to 4-2 by handing the Yellow Jackets (3-1) their first loss of the season.

The Shorewomen scored six of the game's first seven goals to grab a 6-1 lead on a goal by freshman midfielder Marissa Restaino (Media, PA/Penncrest) off an assist from freshman midfielder Mollie Shipley (Denville, NJ/Morris Catholic) with 10:34 to play in the first half. Washington held an 8-3 lead at halftime and built its biggest lead of the game on a free-position goal by sophomore midfielder Rachel Bartee (Mount Airy, MD/South Carroll) with 8:30 left in the second half which upped the margin to 12-4. The Yellow Jackets scored four times in the final 8:02, including twice in the last minute of the contest, to provide the final margin.

Parrish scored her four goals on just six shots, while Restaino had a terrific all-around game, scoring three goals, controlling four draws, scooping up three ground balls, and causing four Randolph-Macon turnovers. Bartee added a pair of goals, while Shipley had one goal and one assist. Junior attacker Sarah Cannon (Baltimore, MD/Notre Dame Prep) and junior midfielder Sam Ohrem (Ridgefield, CT/Ridgefield) netted one goal each, while senior midfielder Allie Hanzsche (Catonsville, MD/Mount de Sales) had one assist.

Erin Clare Cassidy led Randolph-Macon with three goals and two assists. Logan Pomeroy scored two goals, while Emily Kent handed out three assists. Kelly Cramer, Kelly Egan, and Elyse Cooper each scored one goal.

Washington held a 29-14 advantage in shots in the game and forced 20 Randolph-Macon turnovers while committing only nine.
